According to the document signed by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Arkady Dvorkovich following the meeting on implementation of investment projects in transport sector (IAA PortNews has a copy of the document), certain instructions have been given by Arkady Dvorkovich on construction of Vostochny-Nakhodka railway hub in the Primorsky Territory.
Together with the Consumer Council and other stakeholders, Russian Railways President Oleg Belozerov is instructed to introduce amendments into the master plan on the development of Vostochny-Nakhodka railway hub. The hub capacity should be expanded with additional 20 mln t by 2019 in view of the guaranteed growth of Vostochny Port JSC throughput.
RF Transport Ministry is to develop proposals on comprehensive implementation of the Vostochny-Nakhodka project by 2020 with off-budget financing through concessions.
IAA PortNews believes this measure will let complete the construction of another coal terminal at port Vostochny – Sever (the Russian for North). State customer of the Sever terminal is FTI Rostransmodernizatsiya. Operator of the project – Summa Group. As of today, the construction of the facility included into the Vostochny-Nakhodka project is behind schedule.
